How to Remove the Blue Redirect Arrows in Outlook 2007


The default view setting in Microsoft Outlook 2007 includes a field to the far left of the window, called the header status, that displays different information about each message in your mailbox. For example, when you forward or redirect a message, Outlook will place a blue arrow next to the original email. If you would rather not see these blue arrows, you can hide the field by customizing the view settings.

  • Launch the Outlook 2007 application on your PC computer.

  • Go to the "Mail" tab in the lower-left corner of the window.

  • Open the "View" menu at the top of the window, expand the "Arrange by" submenu and choose "Custom."

  • Click on the "Fields" button.

  • Highlight "Header Status" from the list of active fields on the right side of the window and then click "Remove."

  • Click "OK" twice to save the settings. The header status field and the blue redirect arrows will now stop appearing.
